Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Chaize turns the familiar into the new - to both his eyes and ours." - FastCoDesign

"The summer's most compelling coffee-table book." - Lonny

"Photographer Christian Chaize spent eight years, returning repeatedly over the course of that time, shooting Praia Piquinia a beach in the south of Portugal from the same vantage point-a long term time lapse photographic project. The results are a skein of 80 thought-provoking images fusing various measures of light and weather and people that invite close inspection." - Daily Beast

"Christian Chaize has created an amazing book that highlights images most people gloss over. The photographer was interested in an expanse of coastline in southern Portugal and he began photographing a single stretch of beach multiple times a year. Time and Tide: Photographs from Praia Piquinia documents the wonderful landscapes he captured in his endeavor. The work has an unexpected magic; umbrellas, towels, and other beach items have a new life in the series with their colors juxtaposed with the sand of the beach. The images of the ocean and the rocky terrain are captivating." - Complex.com
